Oklahoma State Senator Files the ‘Piers Morgan Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms Without Infringement Act’

From the Washington Times, an amusing story for a Thursday afternoon:

Sen. Nathan Dahm filed Senate Bill 1473, or the “Piers Morgan Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms Without Infringement Act, in order to allow adult citizens to openly carry without a license, a local Fox News affiliate reported.

“The Second Amendment says the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, and yet when we require our citizens to jump through hoops, pay fees and undergo a process that presumes they’re guilty of something until proven otherwise, their rights are being infringed upon,” Mr. Dahm said in a press release. “Senate Bill 1473 simply says Oklahomans can carry firearms in all the places currently allowed by law, but they will no longer be required to obtain a license to do so.”

For some reason, Morgan doesn’t think that this is funny:

All joking aside, if the Oklahoma legislature were to pass the bill, the state would become the sixth to adopt so-called “constitutional carry” legislation. “Constitutional carry,” which does away with all licensing and draws no legal distinction between the concealed and open carrying of firearms, is making inroads in the states, with Vermont (the original, since 1791), Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, and Wyoming all having moved to the model. Onwards and upwards!

In case you missed it, my piece today is on Morgan — this time knocking his reactionary views on freedom of speech. He has to yet to accept my standing invitation for a televised debate.
